Journal of Climate Resilience & Climate Justice is open for submissions

The peer-reviewed, open access journal will publish scholarship on the working edge of climate resilience and justice fields

The MIT Press is honored to publish the new online, open access, peer-reviewed Journal of Climate Resilience & Climate Justice. The journal, to launch with a first issue in May 2023, will provide research reports, case studies, essays, and opinions from the working edge of the climate resilience and climate justice fields written in a non-technical, digestible, and educational style for a broad audience. Journal of Climate Resilience & Climate Justice is currently accepting submissions for its first-ever issue through October 9, 2022.

This is a peer reviewed journal that invites manuscripts from professionals working in state and local government, non-governmental organizations, academic research, think tanks, and the private sector in the US and abroad. Submissions by professional authors will be reviewed by peers in the field and graduate student submissions will be reviewed by CRCJ’s Student Editorial Board (SEB).

CRCJ’s content aims to address the many multidisciplinary facets of both climate resilience and climate justice fields, across topics like:

  • climate change impacts, mitigation, adaptation, and migration
  • climate justice strategies
  • climate-related hazards, disaster preparedness, and recovery strategies
  • climate resilience and sustainability planning
  • social capital building and stakeholder engagement
  • climate finance

Articles are meant to inform, educate, and assist practitioners, planners, and students, as well as expand knowledge-sharing and innovation for effectively addressing climate change with a strong equity component. Published once a year, each issue will include six to eight professional articles and two graduate student articles—with the first issue planned for spring 2023.

This is an open access journal with no author publishing fees, made possible through the generous support of the Nell Newman Foundation, the Dean Witter Foundation, and the Masters of the Environment program (MENV) at the University of Colorado Boulder.
